Hello fellow creator!

We are Alex Darke & Trevor L. Nelson, co-founders of the indie production company Gilded Cinema, co-hosts of the No-Budget Filmmaking Podcast, and now co-creators of Cinema Summit. We have been extremely fortunate to have gone to one of the best film schools in the world, produce multiple feature films, and create over 1,000 episodes of television while earning a few Emmy nominations along the way.

Now, we want to pass along some of our knowledge and experience to you. Learn more about us HERE.

Cinema Summit is about our journey in Los Angeles as we battle our way through the film industry.

Even though this journey is through our eyes, Cinema Summit is about YOU.

We are breaking the rules of the entertainment industry and subscribing to a mission of transparency so that you, our fellow creators, can see our highest highs and learn from our lowest lows.

We are kicking off this new chapter by starting fresh. Meaning we are selling off the film equipment that we've accumulated over the years and starting at Day 1.

Follow along with us as we juggle our personal lives, our day jobs, and our dreams as we work toward the ultimate goal of making our own projects.

Every last one of your contributions is appreciated, whether you give us $5 or $50. 

Become a patron today, and let's get going!

Thank you always,

Alex Darke & Trevor L. Nelson
